CNGS Group installed the topside of the LAM-E Platform by means of the “float-over” method in the Caspian Sea, offshore Turkmenistan in August 2016.
In accordance with the regulatory requirements, Leg Mating Units (LMU’s) of unconventional design were developed and have been utilized by CNGS Group during the topside installation. The specific and unique advantages of this LMU design lie in the fact that this unit can be assembled using standard, of-the-shelf components. CNGS Group fabricated all LMU’s for the project in-house, at their own fabrication facilities. Therefore both the LMU cost and delivery period have been significantly reduced.
